48th Legislative District

ManarTAYLORVILLE – Edwin Akers walked into Christian County Senior Citizens on Tuesday evening empty handed but walked out with answers, a stack of helpful information and an energy efficient light bulb.

Akers was looking to switch electric companies and wanted to know how that would affect his bill.

“Before today, there was a lot confusing information about switching and how much it’d cost. Today, there was helpful information, I learned a lot and I could be saving some money,” Akers said.

Akers and other Taylorville residents got the chance to lower their utility bills, learn energy efficiency tips and find out about helpful, cost savings programs during a Utility Bill Workshop. State Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) hosted the workshop with the Citizens Utility Board.

“This workshop gives families and seniors with limited income creative ways to save money on their bills. If they can save even a few dollars a month, it can make a big difference,” Manar said.

The workshop gave utility customers the chance to sit down one-on-one with a specialist from CUB and review their gas, electric and phone bills to find savings, learn about programs to lower bills and get tips on making their homes more energy efficient.

“We serve the entire state and we’re always happy to help people lower the bills,” CUB Director of Governmental Affairs Bryan McDaniel said.

CUB is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that works and advocates for residential utility customers across the state.
